The drama in the Aam Aadmi Party continued today with sacked minister Kapil Mishra saying he will file an FIR against the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
He also issued an open letter against the Delhi chief minister, whom he called his 'guru', challenging him for an open election.
"I am releasing an open letter to Kejriwal. I am going to file FIRs against the person from whom I have learnt to fight against corruption and to take a stand for the truth. He used to be my 'guru' and today I am fighting against him. This is very painful for me but I can't keep quiet. From whom I have learnt these things, today I want his blessings for the victory in this war against corruption. I will file an FIR against you and I am apologising for the same," Mishra said.
On Sunday, Mishra had alleged that Kejriwal took two crore rupees from health minister Satyendra Jain against whom the CBI is probing a case of money laundering.
AAP leader Sanjay Singh held a press conference on Monday refuting those allegations against Kejriwal.
The Delhi Assembly will hold a one-day special session today where the BJP and the AAP will try to corner each other on a range of issues including the latest allegations against the chief minister levelled by one of his former cabinet ministers, ANI said.
Kejriwal's aides are expected to come up with some revelations at 2 pm today.
Kejriwal-led AAP has termed the recently conducted CBI raid on Delhi secretariat and the issuance of notice against the party for its overseas funding by the home ministry a case of political vendetta.
